Health-Professions Preparation Stream (**)

A stream is a suggested list of courses to achieve a goal. This stream, available on either a Regular or Co-op basis, combines the Honours Kinesiology program and its emphasis on human applications, with specific suggestions in Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, Physics, Psychology and Sociology. It is intended to develop an academic profile which may prepare students for potential study in medicine, podiatry, chiropractic and speech pathology. It is also intended for the student whose interests develop into graduate study in the health disciplines. Students are strongly urged to consult the admission requirements of the professional schools of interest to aid in their choice of electives. Overall and major cumulative averages of 75% are considered minimal to be competitive for application to programs in the health-professions. A suggested course sequence is available on request from the Department of Kinesiology.

  1. Required Kinesiology Courses (14):

Honours Co-op Kinesiology Programs
Ergonomics Option

This limited enrolment Co-op program is intended to help prepare graduates who will contribute to solving workplace problems, particularly in safety ergonomics to reduce the risk of injury and enhance human performance.
The course requirements have been selected to provide students with a thorough background in the biophysical and behavioural sciences of human motion and related measurement and problem solving skills. Admission and graduation requirements are listed below.

  1. Normally, Kinesiology students will be admitted to the program for the Fall term in Year Two Co-op. First year grades and an interview with the Option Coordinator will be part of the admission consideration. Approximately ten students per year will be selected, dependent upon the number of Co-op jobs available.
  2. Normally at least three of the last four work terms, including work term reports, must be ergonomics related.
  3. Forty-four term courses must be completed. (See current list of PROGRAM COURSES)
  4. The cumulative averages required are the same as for Honours Kinesiology.

Honours Co-op Kinesiology Programs
Neurobehavioural Assessment Option

This limited enrolment Co-op program is designed to prepare graduates who can evaluate the physiological, biomechanical and neuropsychological bases of acquired or developmental motor impairments from a strong background in the neurosciences and the behavioural and biophysical sciences related to the learning and control of human movement.
The course requirements have been selected to provide students with a thorough background in the biophysical, behavioural and neural mechanisms involved in the learning and control of movement. Measurement and problem solving skills associated with the assessment of human movement in healthy individuals and persons with various disabling conditions are also learned. Admission and graduation requirements are listed below.

  1. Normally, Co-op Kinesiology students will be admitted to the program for the Fall term in Year Two. First year grades and an interview will be part of the admission consideration. Approximately ten students per year will be selected, depending on the number of Co-op jobs available.
  2. Normally at least three of the last four work terms, including work term reports, will be related to neurobehavioural assessment activities.
  3. Forty term courses must be completed. (See current list of Program Courses)
